Some interesting statistics about Facebook has been released in this infographic by Mashable. Who knew 83% of women are annoyed by their Facebook friends? It also states that Facebook links about sex are shared 90% more than average – this might be worth taking into consideration if you want to increase your engagement through your Facebook business page. Although obviously this might not be suitable for your clients. It is also interesting looking at the Top 5 Facebook pages – Rihanna and Eminem both in the top 5, with Lady Gaga nowhere to be seen. Although in fairness she makes 3rd in the top 5 musicians by the amount of likes (unfortunately). It is interesting to take into consideration that Lady Gaga is no.1 on Twitter in terms of followers, so maybe representing the difference between demographics between the two social platforms. The infographic also shows the top apps by monthly users, if you’re a Facebook page builder you may notice that ‘Static HTML: iframe tabs’ is 3rd, surprisingly beating Farmville at 3rd.
